Monday PM
Diligent (obsessive) in recording my food intake. Having the MyFitnessPal app on my phone really helps me stay accountable.  I'm tracking everything I ingest, even stuff like a single peanut butter pretzel nub and an herbal throat lozenge.  Having trouble psychologically still. Hunger pangs even though I've had plenty to eat.  I usually can't make it through the first 3 days of calorie reduction. 

Tried some fat in the form of cheese and it helped.  I actually cut up the cheese into little 1-inch cubes using a tape measure! I'm weighing and measuring everything I eat. Feel really good at the end of the day by being 13 calories UNDER my calorie limit. Feeling a little under the weather though like I'm coming down with the flu.
